LEAD STORY

CONFIGURE LOTUS NOTES WITH GMAIL
This article will instruct you how to receive Gmail into your existing Lotus Notes mailbox by configuring a POP3 SSL account.

If you are running Lotus Notes 8.x (Basic) or Notes 7/6 you can skip step 2 & 3, and the remaining instructions should be somewhat similar.

Using Smart Upgrade to install Notes components on Windows
Prior to Notes 8.5.2, it was not possible to use Smart Upgrade to upgrade Notes components like Sametime or Symphony without either upgrading Notes as part of a chained installation or causing users to be continually prompted to upgrade, even after a successful upgrade. For these upgrade scenarios, the core Notes version string does not change, and thus there was no way prior to 8.5.2 to signal the client not to keep prompting for an upgrade.

Even IBM Can't Win the Cloud Alone
We like to think of cloud technology as being open source, but most of it is proprietary. Amazon.com (AMZN) Web Services is proprietary. The Google (GOOG) Compute Engine is, too. Microsoft's (MSFT) Azure was optimized for Windows. Salesforce.com (CRM_) runs on Oracle (ORCL). Until this week, open source was a small rebel band fighting several death stars in the cloud. Then, as AllThingsD reported, IBM (IBM) stepped in.

IBM Leads Open Source Cloud Flotilla Against Amazon
It's strange to see IBM (IBM) as being the underdog in any fight, but super-aggressive price-cutting by Amazon.com (AMZN) has kept that company well ahead in the market for public cloud services.

IBM To Make Its Cloud Services and Software Open Sourced-based
